As they prepare for the release of their forthcoming album "Dirge Of Escapism", Bay Area’s Primal Rite will grace the cover of New Noise Magazine issue #37 due out in early 2018. Check out the cover artwork below and listen to the track “Bow To No One,” which will appear exclusively on the magazine’s accompanying flexi 7inch, HERE.
Primal Rite’s debut album is poised to be one of the most crushing debuts of the coming year. With a flurry of 7-inch releases already out on Revelation Records, Grave Mistake Records, and Warthog Speak Records plus a cassette on Pop Wig Records, the band is ready to top both their contemporaries and themselves. Propelled by vocalist Lucy Xavier’s fiery skirmishes on personal politics, mental health, and identity, Primal Rite’s thrashing dirges are galvanized by a noble purpose. No punk bravado, no machismo—just wailing guitars, nods to both Japanese + Cleveland hardcore styles, and controlled chaos that will be stirring long after the record’s 30-minute runtime.
"Dirge of Escapism" will be released via Revelation Records on January 26, 2018. Be sure to also check out Primal Rite as they head out on tour and play a festival as well, see dates below.
